Treasure Island


What is Love?

To many love is a feeling
A strange warmth that cuddles the heart

To others love is a unity
For which each member is a part

To some love is an emotion
Expressed daily in all we do

To few love is but only a game
That is not often played by two

To me love is a time a place and a reason to live
A special strength to keep giving
When there is no more left to give

Yes love is a treasure
Worth more than silver and gold
Love is a dream turned reality
That keeps you warm when life turns so cold

Love is a firm hand to point direction
When the whole world just seems so lost
We but only need to remember
Love never died upon that cross

    They say that love is the most used, abused, overused, and misused word in the English language. But for all our experiences and studies about love, it all boils down to one thing, it remains boundless by words. I like your concept of love. And I like your poem. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
